Legal Answers
Q. I work in HR, and I have an employee who is on intermittent FMLA. They mentioned quitting, what else should we do?
A: More facts are needed for an attorney to suggest the right course of action. I suggest you retain one.
Q. Hello , my employer refuse to pay me over 10000$ in commission
A: Hire an employment law attorney for a consultation to guide you on the best course of action.
Q. Is New Jersey an “at will” state? Does an employer have any right to mandate the experimental Covid shot?
A: New Jersey is an at-will state, but that does not apply to employees who have a contract with the employer, and it does not permit employers to terminate employees for unlawful reasons, such as retaliation or discrimination. Employers have the right to mandate that employees get the COVID-19 vaccine but must make exceptions and try to find accommodations for employees who object to doing so due to their own medical or religious concerns. judging from your questions, it would likely be worthwhile for you to consult an employment attorney.
